Research Fellowship

A Fellowship Program for PhD Candidates (ABD), PhD Independent Researchers and PhD Untenured Faculty

 The Etruscan Foundation Research Fellowship is designed to support research in all areas of research on Etruscan and indigenous cultures of non-Greek Italy dating from the Neolithic through the 1st Century BCE. The fellowship is open to Canadian and U.S. citizens and those affiliated with U.S. institutions who are PhD candidates (ABD), PhD independent researchers and PhD untenured faculty. The Research Fellowship may be used for archaeological fieldwork, site surveying, collection analysis, museum study or archival research at sites in Italy whose primary focus is Etruscan and/or indigenous cultures on non-Greek Italy dating from the Neolithic through the 1st Century BCE. The Fellowship may only be used for materials whose acquisition conforms to the Archaeological Institute of America’s Code of Ethics.
